[VIDEO]: The Vice President in question guesses her plight that she will be buried in debts due to Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against her. in fact, according to her newly released SALN, she’s getting broke.
If Marcos wins a senatorial seat. In assuming the office of Senator, he effectively abandons or withdraws the protest. At the very least, he abandons his determination to protect and pursue the public interest. That involves the matter of who is the real choice of the electorate. Such abandonment or withdrawal operates to render moot the instant protest.
On to the Recount
The unfortunate thing for Robredo is, the preliminary conference for the protest is already set in motion on June 21. The major issue in the petition is the recount of the votes from three questionable areas that Marcos submits to the Supreme Court five days before the prelim.
Expedite the Process
The camp of Marcos refutes the claim of Vice President Leni Robredo’s lawyer that his request for the Supreme Court (SC) to assign hearing officers on his poll protest was “premature” and “impractical.” Marcos seeks for at least three hearing officers for the three issues that he wants to be resolved by the tribunal. This is a move that his lawyer George Garcia encountered in the past.
Logic of Time
The delaying tactics of Robredo’s camp are very crucial to the result of the electoral protest. It can bring difficulty for Marcos to plan his political career. This can be the reason why his lawyer comes up with strategies to finish the recount in one-and-a-half years. This can be very timely for the senatorial race in 2019.
